Benedetta was contacted by Radio24, the Italian Radio channel of il Sole 24 Ore (think of it as the Financial Times of Italy) for a radio interview. Radio24 hosts a fantastic program called Giovani Talenti (“Young Talents”) which tells the stories of young Italian expatriates that have managed to study and pursue their careers in other countries and their relationships with the homeland. This program touches on a very important issue that forces Italian youth today to leave the Country in order to reach certain goals and dreams.

Benedetta in a Maasai Village in Kenya

The edition with Benedetta focuses particularly on designers and the world of international design and what opportunity Italy still offers in this realm. To comment on the situation, Radio24 interviews two wonderful Italian guests well inserted in the world of design: Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino and Luisa Bocchietto from ADI, the Association for Industrial Design of Italy. Thanks so much to Radio24 and journalist Sergio Nava for such a great opportunity to share our story from the other side of the pond.
